The folks at Sneaky Zebra have a pretty legitimate looking Star Wars Fan Film in the works and they are getting close to completing it, but they're looking for some backing from the fan community. Check out the trailer below and see what you think!
From Sneaky Zebra:
PROJECT STATUS: We are 80% done with production, and sadly we don't have an R2 unit to deliver the message but, we need your help.
“Echoes of Darkness” takes place 30 years after Return of The Jedi, and tells the story of a ragtag group of scavengers lead by Fiotan Dassyne. Treasure hunters in the new Republic who are hired to find a more recent relic on The Forest Moon of Endor.
Unaware of how dangerous their employer is, and the true magnitude of their package, the mask of the former Dark Lord, Darth Vader. The crew play a dangerous game making a deal that could make them rich or cost them everything.
The main objective with “Echoes of Darkness” has been to create a different type of story in the fan film universe, one that isn't the battle of the Jedi and The Sith, and One that also explore the new landscape of the Star Wars universe between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.
Based on one question in the Directors head, what was the journey of that melted helmet after Luke left it burning. And one that is compelling, with the exploration of different character types than we are used to in the main Star Wars Universe. The rogues and smuggler we get glimpses of with Lando and Han, that are never really explored beyond them.
But really! We just want to finish creating a unique and enjoyable film that you are all going to want to see!
